Black seabass

It inhabits the coasts from Maine to NE Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

The Black seabass lives in the reef-associated, oceanodromous, marine, depth range 1 - m environment.

Black Seabass are protogynous hermaphrodites meaning they begin life as females and later transform into males. Transformation from female to male generally occurs between ages 2 and 5. More
